LILLINGTON, N.C. (WNCN) — On Monday, investigators with the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office filed juvenile petitions against two 17-year-olds for the shooting death of James Devon Snipes.

CBS 17 previously reported that Snipes went missing on Aug. 22 from his Lee County home. His body was found two days later in a wooded area near Buffalo Lakes Road and Cooks Lane in Harnett County.

The 17-year-olds were each charged with first degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy. They are being held in a juvenile detention facility.

When reporting her son missing, Snipes’ mother also reported her car, a Hyundai Tucson, stolen.

Sanford police and Lee County Sheriff’s deputies were able to locate the stolen car near North Horner Boulevard. Officials said the driver fled from a parking lot and crashed into another vehicle at the intersection of Broadway Road and Cox Mill Road. After the car flipped, law enforcement chased the driver who exited the sunroof of the car and ran to a nearby housing development. Deputies apprehended the driver and two others who were in the car— a 19-year-old and two juveniles.

It is unclear if the two juveniles found with the car are the same two juveniles charges in Snipes’ death.
